Clio Reese Sady

This show is a collection of recent work by Clio Reese Sady, including pages of We All Trespass, an anarchafeminist murder mystery set in post apocalyptic San Francisco. Layered pen and ink paintings capture an invented future in which most San Franciscans have been corralled into debt prisons. We All Trespass follows the story of a teen girl named Becca who travels to San Francisco in order to find her "disappeared" sister. We All Trespass is shown alongside a tryptic of film stills capturing moments of transracial adoption in recent blockbusters such as Drive, Elysium and World War Z. The aim is to freeze and observe the political impact of this fantasy through cold film stills rendered in pen and ink.

Clio Reese Sady is a tattooer who splits their time between San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. Sady welcomes questions and comments about the work! Please write .
